Es turno para analizar el AMD Ryzen 5 3600, una CPU que es bastante similar al modelo X, salvo por tener una frecuencia un poco más baja, 3,6/4,2 GHz y un TDP de 65W que el AMD Ryzen 5 3600X.
Esto implica que sobre el papel será una CPU que admita menor overclocking, y otra de las consecuencias será el que cuenta con el disipador de stock Wraith Stealth, el más pequeño de los tres disponible, algo que analizaremos con cuidado durante este análisis.
La pregunta que todos debemos hacernos es, ¿AMD Ryzen 5 3600X o el Ryzen 5 3600, cuál es mejor partido? Lo veremos en esta review. Además, este 3600 viene con sorpresa, ya que será sorteado junto a una placa base X570 muy pronto en Profesional Review, prometemos tratarlo bien.
Antes de seguir, debemos agradecer a Miguel Ángel por la compra de esta CPU para realizar todos nuestros análisis.
AMD Ryzen 5 3600 características técnicas
No nos cansamos de desempaquetar CPU y bombardearlas de pruebas y calentones, pero esto es lo que nos gusta, ¿A quién no? En esta ocasión tenemos un bundle bastante más pequeñito en el las otros procesadores Ryzen de nueva generación. La razón es simple, el disipador es bastante más pequeño.
Así que tenemos delante una caja de cartón flexible completamente impreso con los colores y serigrafía distintiva de Ryzen y el procesador bien visible mediante una abertura por una de las partes laterales de la caja. Esperemos que esta vez no venga con algún pin doblado, porque no me gusta nada que estos delicados componentes estén ahí tan a la vista y expuestos a golpes durante su traslado.
Abrimos la caja y nos encontramos con la CPU dentro de un encapsulado de plástico medianamente duro, y una caja estrecha de cartón en donde se guarda el disipador del AMD Ryzen 5 3600. Además de ellos, solo contamos con una pequeña guía de usuario, ya que la pasta térmica viene aplicada de fábrica en el disipador.
Diseño exterior y encapsulado del AMD Ryzen 5 3600
Este AMD Ryzen 5 3600 es, digamos, la versión relajada del 3600X el cual tiene un ligero aumento de frecuencia de 200 MHz tanto de base como en modo turbo. Por este, y algunos otros motivos, tenemos un procesador algo más barato que el modelo “X”, en torno a los 50 o 60 euros según donde queramos comprarlo. La cuestión es saber si merecerá la pena más uno que otro, así que parece tendremos que dedicarnos a realizar las mismas pruebas en ambos, y ese será precisamente nuestro cometido.
En lo que respecta a novedades estéticas, pues hombre, no tenemos absolutamente ninguna, ya que de una CPU pocos detalles podemos sacar excepto los que haya en el disipador. Para los que no hayáis visto otras review de estos Ryzen Zen2, sabed que tenemos un encapsulado o IHS construido en aluminio y cobre prácticamente ocupando el sustrato por competo y de considerable grosor como podéis ver en las imágenes.
La arquitectura de los Ryzen se basa en chiplets, que no son más que pastillas de silicio o DIE con los circuitos correspondientes metidos dentro. En todos los casos tenemos tres DIE, dos para los núcleos y otro para el PCH, luego veremos con más detalles que hay en cada chiplet. Lo importante aquí es que el IHS está soldado a ellos, nada de pasta térmica, para así evitar que haya resistencias térmicas entre DIE y disipador. Algo bueno de este IHS tan grande y voluminoso, es que el calor se reparte por mayor superficie, y eso significa más cantidad de calor a eliminar.
En la cara opuesta lo que encontramos es la matriz de pines, que en este caso son unos cuantos, todos rectos y recubiertos de oro para mejorar la conductividad eléctrica. El socket que AMD utiliza es el tradicional AM4, basado en una matriz PGA (Pin Grid Array) con los huecos para introducir la CPU directamente en el socket de la placa base.
Para instalarlo, solamente debemos de levantar la palanca metálica del socket hacia arriba y luego introducir sin fuerza alguna la CPU en éste. Siempre con la flecha de la CPU (en una esquina) alineada con la flecha en el socket. Si no entra de forma natural no debéis forzar, así que comprobad que los pines estén completamente alineados en todas las direcciones del espacio. En una de las CPU, concretamente la 3600X, nos llegó con un pin doblado, nada que no se pudiera arreglar con unas pizas, pero tenedlo en cuenta.
Diseño del disipador
Sin más preámbulo, veamos el otro elemento que nos trae este AMD Ryzen 5 3600, que será su respectivo disipador. AMD cuenta con tres disipadores de stock distintos, que ordenadores de mejor a peor son, el Wraith Prism, Wraith Spire y el Wraith Stealth. Pues como nos temíamos, este modelo trae el más bajo de todos, siendo el Wraith Stealth, es muy silencioso sí, pero también pequeñito para una CPU con 6 y 12 en el interior.
Se trata entonces de un bloque simple, íntegramente construido en aluminio con un sistema de aletas vertical que parten de una columna central de aluminio hueca en su interior para no almacenar tanto calor. Sobre la superficie de contacto, tenemos una buena capa de pasta térmica pre aplicada de fábrica, por lo que solamente será desempaquetar e instalar. El grosor del bloque de aluminio será de aproximadamente 25 mm, bastante pequeñito debemos decir.
Sobre él, tenemos un ventilador sin iluminación RGB instalada, y compuesto por 7 aspas de diseño tradicional y con una cabecera de 4 pines para el control PWM desde la placa base. Con el protector externo circular, tenemos un diámetro de 100 mm, pero el efectivo de las aspas es de 85 mm, exactamente igual que el Wraith Spire.
Por último, vamos a ver el sistema de anclaje que AMD ha utilizado para este disipador, porque es exactamente igual que el del Wraith Spire. En este caso tenemos tan solo un bracket con cuatro tornillos que tendremos que roscar de forma manual al socket, por lo que necesitaremos retirar las dos pestañas de plástico del socket de la placa. De esta forma atornillaremos el disipador directamente en los cuatro huecos sin preocuparnos por apretar mucho, ya que un muelle en cada tornillo se encargará de controlar el límite de presión sobre el IHS.
Al igual que en otros procesadores, en este AMD Ryzen 5 3600 nos vamos a repetir bastante debido a la importante similitud con su hermano mayor 3600X. Entre las novedades más remarcables que tenemos en esta nueva generación de Ryzen, tenemos un descenso en la litografía de los transistores a solo 7 nm FinFET. La segunda mejora radica en los carriles PCIe, ya que tendremos nada menos que 24 en la CPU soportando el bus PCIe 4.0.
Pero también existen mejoras en la interfaz de E/S de la CPU o PCH, que AMD ha llamado Infinity Fabric. Ésta se encarga de la comunicación con la memoria RAM, habiendo mejorado prácticamente en todos los aspectos, recordad que ha sido siempre el punto débil de la arquitectura Zen. A efectos visibles, tenemos una disminución de la latencia, y un aumento de la capacidad máxima con hasta 128 GB en Dual Channel a 3200 MHz. En cualquier caso, soportará memorias con overclocking de fábrica hasta los 4400 y 4800 MHz según qué placas.
En el caso concreto de esta CPU, tenemos un recuento de 6 núcleos y 12 hilos de procesamiento o threads, gracias a la tecnología multithreading AMD SMT, análoga del Hyperthreading de Intel. Ofrecen una velocidad de 3,6 GHz de frecuencia base y 4,2 GHz en modo turbo, siendo 200 MHz en cada caso más lento que el modelo 3600X. Consecuencia de esto es el descenso del TDP a solo 65W, frente a los 95W del modelo mencionado. Siendo sin duda un registro excelente para una CPU tan sumamente potente como esta.
La mencionada arquitectura de chiplets de AMD se basa en implementar un determinado número bloques de silicio o DIEs en un procesador en función de los núcleos que necesitamos. Cada chiplet de AMD está compuesto por 8 núcleos y 32 MB de memoria caché. El fabricante va desactivando o activando núcleos para crear así los modelos deseados.
En este AMD Ryzen 5 3600 y en todas las CPU, tenemos tres chiplets o CCX. Uno siempre será para el PCH, mientras que dos de ellos contienen 16 núcleos activos o inactivos. Para este modelo tenemos tres núcleos activados por cada CCX, y los correspondientes 16 MB de caché L3 que comparten. Esto hace un total de 6 núcleos con sus 12 hilos correspondientes. La memoria caché L1 se compone de 32 KB en dos bloques, L1I y L1D por cada núcleo, más pequeña que la generación anterior, pero de 8 vías. La caché L2 suma un total de 3 MB, siendo 512KB por núcleo, ya que 1 MB no está disponible por estar dos núcleos apagados. Y finalmente la caché L3 está formada por 32 MB, los máximos para 6 núcleos al ir compartida en bloques de 16 MB por cada 4 núcleos.
Se trata de CPU desbloqueada en su multiplicador para poder overclockearla, aunque con las BIOS que tenemos actualmente en las placas y las limitaciones impuestas por AMD, aún no podemos obtener resultados satisfactorios en este proceso. Imaginamos que en un futuro muy próximo estos problemas serán solventados mediante firmware.

Para comprobar la estabilidad del procesador AMD Ryzen 5 3600 en valores de stock. La placa base la hemos estresado con Prime 95 Custom y refrigeración por aire mediante el disipador de stock. La gráfica que hemos utilizado es una Nvidia RTX 2060 Founders Edition, sin más dilación, veamos los resultados obtenidos en nuestras pruebas.
Benchmarks (Test sintéticos)
Hemos probado el rendimiento con la plataforma X570 y hardware de primer nivel. ¿Veremos ese 15% de mejora que promete AMD respecto a la generación anterior? De igual forma, os vamos a proporcionar datos de algunos benchmarks con la memoria RAM a 2133 MHz, y a 3600 MHz con XMP activado.
- Cinebench R15 y R20 (Puntuación CPU).
- PCMark 8
- Blender Robot
- Wprime 32M
Pruebas en juegos
De igual forma, hemos probado este conjunto con los 6 juegos que venimos utilizado desde hace algún tiempo, para así tener una referencia con el resto de modelos analizados. Existe una enorme lista de IP, y eso imposible probarlas ni comprarlas todas. Extrapolad estos resultados y los escalones de rendimiento entre CPU para ver más o menos como se comportaría con un determinado juego. Esta es la configuración gráfica utilizada
- Shadow of the Tomb Rider, Alto, TAA + Anisotropico x4, DirectX 12
- Far Cry 5, Alto, TAA, DirectX 12
- DOOM, Ultra, TAA, Open GL 4.5
- Final Fantasy XV, standard, TAA, DirectX 12

- Metro Exodus, Alto, Anisotropico x16, DirectX 12 (sin RT)
Al igual que los otros Ryzen, el procesador no permite hacer overclock desde AMD Ryzen Master ni desde la BIOS (de momento). Sólo podemos ajustar el voltaje, para hacerle undervolting. En el caso que subamos el multiplicador para mejorar la frecuencia el equipo se congelará y se reiniciará, algo que hemos probado en varias veces con idénticos resultados.
En cualquier caso, esta CPU no soportará una subida de frecuencia demasiado grande, debido a su bajo TDP, así que, si pensáis hacerlo overclocking en un futuro, sería mejor irnos a la versión 3600X.
En esta toma anterior podemos ver mejor la actividad de los 6 núcleos, tres en cada CCX y además indicando con una estrella el más potente de cada uno.
Consumo y temperatura
Hemos usado Prime95 en su versión large para probar tanto las temperaturas como el consumo. Todas las lecturas de Watts han sido medidas desde el enchufe de la pared y el conjunto completo excepto el monitor.
Tratándose de una CPU bastante potente como el AMD Ryzen 5 3600, este disipador tras largos procesos de estrés ha trabajado dignamente. Y es que estos 78°C de media se han mantenido estables durante gran parte del tiempo con la CPU a full, lo cual no está nada mal para lo relativamente pequeño que es. En cualquier caso, si tenemos pensado montar un equipo gaming con esta CPU, que sería lo más normal, recomendamos adquirir un disipador de mayor tamaño o incluso una refrigeración líquida normalita.
De nuevo vemos un consumo curiosamente alto en reposo de todo el equipo, incluso superando al 3600X. esto se puede deber a la propia placa base y de cómo la BIOS gestiona el voltaje en los núcleos y demás hardware. Los resultados pasan a ser los esperados cuando le pedimos el máximo a la CPU, con unos 140W elevados, pero entrando dentro de lo que esperado en vista a los resultados en otros Ryzen 3000.
Cuando estresamos el conjunto entero, CPU y GPU, obtenemos también un resultado ligeramente inferior al 3600X, con 297W así que podemos decir que no ha habido sorpresas en este sentido.
Palabras finales y conclusión acerca de AMD Ryzen 5 3600
Este AMD Ryzen 5 3600 se perfila como una de las grandes opciones para usuarios gamer que quiere actualizar su plataforma a esta nueva generación y no cuenta con el fondo suficiente como para permitirse los 3700. Con una frecuencia de 3,6/4,2 GHz que son tan solo 200 MHz menos que la versión X en sus 6 núcleos y 12 hilos.
El TDP también es inferior, aunque esto no lo demuestra precisamente en los valores de consumo, ya que son bastante elevados en reposo, aunque luego a full sí que se pone en el lugar que le corresponde. La plataforma de pruebas aún está bastante verde en general y esto se salda con voltajes elevados y consumos algo inconsistentes.
Aún no tenemos posibilidad de hacer overclocking, pero pensamos que esta CPU no va a ser una gran opción para ello, sobre todo teniendo el 3600X, creemos que sería una compra más sensata.

Paro ni falta que hace, porque fijándonos en los registros de FPS de los juegos, estamos prácticamente a la par de su hermano e incluso CPU más potentes, y lo mismo ocurre con el rendimiento puro en sus núcleos mediante los test sintéticos. Precisamente por eso su calidad/precio es buenísima
En lo que a temperaturas se refiere, parece que esta nueva plataforma presenta unos registros algo más elevados que la anterior, debido al aumento de frecuencia y consumo. Pero si tenemos en cuenta que el disipador de stock es la versión más baja de las tres de AMD, están realmente bien, aunque uno de mayor tamaño para equipos gaming si que lo recomendamos.
Todo esto que decimos se refuerza con un precio de unos 219 euros, que no está nada mal para los registros de rendimiento que hemos visto. Por nuestra parte lo vemos sumamente recomendable, ¿y tú? ¿qué Ryzen 3000 ves como favorito en calidad/precio?

Pros: - I like the way it looks - Will update the review after I receive the new one.
Cons: - Didn't work after I received the product. - Doesn't power on at all, checked all connections, power outlets narrowed it down to either a bad motherboard or power supply. Haven't been able to test the GPU yet as most of the reviews I've read that were bad so their GPU was DOA. I am currently contacting technical support and ill keep you updated on the replacement process.
Overall Review: I like the way this product looks, it would be a great value if it worked. I don't know how the replacement process is going to be but I am contacting technical support today to find out how we can get this replaced. I was excited to receive this product and was in hopes I would be able to start setting it up during my vacation from work. Now I'll be sending it back for a replacement. I've read some terrible stories about sending the products back and having repeated or further issues and sometimes even different issues such as damaged cases etc... I'll keep you updated on the steps I've taken here. So far I've contacted NewEgg for the replacement and they sent me over to ABS to deal directly with them. They didn't want to issue the replacement. I am contacting ABS today.

Switching to a solid-state drive is the best upgrade you can make for your PC. These wondrous devices speed up boot times, improve the responsiveness of your programs and games, and generally makes your computer feel fast. But not all solid-state drives are the same. You can find top-notch SSDs that offer solid performance at an affordable price, or you can spend big to achieve read and write speeds that reach a whole other level.
Many SSDs come in a 2.5-inch form factor and connect to your PC via the same SATA port used by a traditional hard drive. But out on the bleeding-edge of NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) drives, you’ll find tiny “gumstick” SSDs that fit in an M.2 connection on a modern motherboard, SSDs that sit on a PCIe adapter and slot into your motherboard like a graphics card or sound card, futuristic 3D Xpoint drives, and more. Picking the perfect SSD isn’t as simple as it used to be.
That’s the purpose of this guide. We’ve tested numerous drives to find the best SSDs for any use case, and offer our top picks below. In addition to that we give you useful information on what to look for in an SSD so you can be a more knowledgable shopper. Quick note: This roundup only covers internal solid-state drives. Check out PCWorld’s guide to the best external drives if you’re looking for a portable storage solution.
Editor’s note: This article was most recently updated with current street prices and fresh information in the news section.
Latest SSD news
- Check out our guide to which SSD you should buy, breaking down everything you need to know about which sort of solid-state drive works best in each system.
- Samsung teased blazing-fast PCIe 5.0 SSDs in July, ahead of the next-gen specification’s expected support in future Intel and AMD systems. It’s an enterprise drive, but make no mistake: PCIe 5.0 is coming.
Best SSD for most people
Samsung’s mainstream EVO series of SSDs has sat atop our recommended list ever since 2014, and the new Samsung 870 EVO is still a great option for people who want a rock-solid blend of speed, price, compatibility, and the reliability of Samsung’s 5-year warranty and superb Magician management software. But most people would be better off buying the SK Hynix Gold S31.
Not only is the Gold S31 among the fastest SATA SSDs we’ve ever tested, landing within spitting distance of the best-in-class 870 EVO, but the price for this drive is spectacular. At $44 for a 250GB drive, $48 for a 500GB drive, or $85 for 1TB, the Gold S31 costs much less than Samsung’s line, which charges $95 for a 500GB model. “When all was said and done in those real-world 48GB copies, the Gold S31 proved the fastest drive we’ve ever tested for sustained read and write operations,” our review proclaimed at the time. Enough said.
Well, maybe not. Let’s talk a bit about the brand itself, since SK Hynix isn’t exactly a household name. Despite that, it’s one of the largest semiconductor manufacturers on the planet. The company has been developing NAND and controller technology since the get-go, and while it’s been the SSD manufacturer for numerous large computer vendors, it generally hasn’t taken a place for itself on the shelves. Now it has, and the results are sterling.
If you need a larger capacity, though, or simply want to stick with a tried-and-true brand, still look to the Samsung 870 EVO, which is available in 250GBRemove non-product link, 500GBRemove non-product link, 1TBRemove non-product link, and 2TB modelsRemove non-product link. They’re just a tiny hair faster than the SK Hynix drives in raw performance but cost a fair amount more. That speaks more to how wildly good of a deal the Gold S31 is though, as the Samsung 870 EVO offers a very compelling and affordable package compared to most SSDs. The Samsung 870 QVO is another strong contender, with capacities ranging from 1TB all the way to a whopping 8TB, but we’ll discuss that in the next section.
Best budget SSD
The best budget SSD is also the best SSD for most people, as the SK Hynix Gold S31 discussed previously delivers fantastic performance at extremely affordable prices. If you aren’t interested in that drive for whatever reason, though, you have more options.
Now that traditional multi-level cell (MLC) and triple-level cell (TLC) solid-state drives are plummeting in price, manufacturers have rolled out new-look quad-level cell (QLC) drives that push SSD prices even lower. The new technology lets drive makers stuff SSDs with hard drive-like levels of capacity while simultaneously coming close to the juicy SSD speeds we all love so much—most of the time. The first round of QLC drives, including the still-superb Samsung 860 QVO, saw its write speeds plunge to hard drive-like levels when you transfer dozens of gigabytes of data in one go.
The Samsung 870 QVO—Samsung’s second-generation QLC offering—doesn’t suffer from the same fate. If you don’t plan on moving around massive amounts of data at once and need more space, this a great option if you need capacities larger than what SK Hynix offers. Samsung’s drive is available at $100 for 1TB, $190 for 2TB, $353 for 4TB, or $700 for 8TB (oof) on Amazon. The older Samsung 860 QVO remains a good option too, but the newer 870 QVO bests it in every way.
If you want to add a bunch of storage to your computer at even lower price, also consider Crucial’s BX500, a fantastic SSD available in several flavors: The 2TB capacity we tested (currently $195 on Amazon), 1TB ($100 on Amazon), 480GB ($55 on Amazon), and 240GB ($35 on Amazon). “The BX500 is subjectively as fast as anything out there until it runs out of cache,” we said in our review. “That’s likely to be a rare occurrence for the average user. Power users should skip it, but for everyone else it’s a good deal.”
But what if you’ve got a newer motherboard that supports the faster, newfangled NVMe M.2 drives? Keep reading!
Best NVMe SSD
If performance is paramount, the Samsung 970 Pro or Seagate FireCuda 510 are the fastest NVMe SSDs you can buy—but most people should buy the SK Hynix Gold P31. Yes, SK Hynix is on a roll, dominating our budget, NVMe, and best overall SSD categories.
The Gold P31 is the first NVMe SSD to feature 128-bit TLC NAND, and it pushes SK Hynix’s drive beyond other options, which use 96 NAND layers. The model we tested absolutely aced our CrystalDiskMark 6 and AS SSD synthetic benchmarks, nearly hitting the blistering 3.5GBps read and write speeds claimed in the press release. It also held its own against SSDs that cost much more in our real-world 48GB and 450GB file transfer tests. “The SK Hynix Gold P31 performs like a top-tier drive, but it’s priced just slightly higher than bargain drives,” we stated, and well, that says it all. You can get a 500GB model for $75, a 1TB model for $135, or a 2TB version for $280 on Amazon.
The Crucial P5 is another great, affordable NVMe SSD that performs on par with much costlier options, and would likely be our top pick if the SK Hynix Gold P31 didn’t exist. The Gold P31 is both slightly faster and slightly cheaper, however, so go for that first. Crucial’s drive is a killer alternative though. Its PCIe 4.0-capable cousin, the Crucial P5 Plus, delivers slightly faster speeds for a much higher sticker price, however. It’s still a capable SSD, but doesn’t earn our full recommendation like the non-Plus P5.
You can find compelling options for slightly less money if you’re on a budget, though. The Western Digital Blue SN550 NVMe SSD isn’t the flashiest NVMe drive, nor is it quite as fast as the alternatives mentioned above. But it costs far, far less. Despite its entry-level price—$50 for 250GB, $60 for 500GB, or $110 for 1TB—the WD Blue SN550 runs circles around other bargain NVMe drives and falls within spitting distance of the performance of those higher-priced enthusiast options. It’s from a known, established brand with a good track record for reliability, too, and comes with a longer-than-average five year warranty.
If you want just a wee bit more performance, the Addlink S70 NVMe SSD is another stellar option, earning our Editors’ Choice award. We slightly prefer its performance to the WD drive’s, but Addlink’s SSDs now cost more than its rival’s after receiving price increases, and the WD Blue SN550’s performance is more than enough for everyday computer users. Addlink isn’t as well-known as WD, but also offers a 5-year warranty on its drive.
The PNY XLR8 CS 3030 is another good option, offering fast performance at a good price. It gets bogged down during especially long writes, however, though it should be excellent for everyday use.
If you don’t mind spending up for faster, Samsung 970 Pro-level performance, the Kingston KC2500 also runs with the big dogs, but at a more affordable price. “While it didn’t reach the top step of the podium in any one test, the KC2500 was always within easy hailing distance of the leader,” we said in our review. “It’s available at about the same price as the competition and should be at the top of your short list when you’re shopping for a high-performance NVMe SSD.”
And now, you can finally get blistering NVMe speeds without sacrificing capacity thanks to a new breed of supersized SSDs, though you’ll pay up for the privilege. The OWC Aura 12 delivers average NVMe performance (read: faster than most) paired with a big 4TB of performance for $929. The superb Sabrent Rocket Q amps everything up with top-notch performance and a crazy 8TB capacity, but it’ll set you back a cool $1,500. The bleeding-edge isn’t cheap.
Best PCIe 4.0 SSD
Most NVMe SSDs use the standard PCIe 3.0 interface, but even faster PCIe 4.0 drives exist now—at least on systems that support the bleeding-edge technology. Currently, only AMD’s Ryzen 3000 processors support PCIe 4.0, and even then only when they’re inserted in a X570 or B550 motherboard. If you meet that criteria, though, PCIe 4.0 SSDs leave even the fastest PCIe 3.0 NVMe SSDs in the dust.
Corsair, Gigabyte, and Sabrent rolled out the first PCIe 4.0 SSDs available, with all offering similar performance from 1TB models at around $200. Our favorite PCIe 4.0 drive costs slightly more, though.
We’ve only recently added a PCIe 4.0 test bench to our setup, but the champion thus far is the Samsung 980 Pro. The drive exceeded Samsung’s claimed 7GBps read and 5GBps write speeds in our testing. To drive home just how ludicrous that is, the SK Hynix Gold P31—our favorite standard NVMe drive—wowed us with write speeds half as fast. Samsung’s drive also blazed through our real-world file transfer tests, though it can occasionally slow down a bit if you throw a massive amount of data at it, as we discovered in our 450GB transfer test. Most people will never stress their SSD this hard, though.
All that performance comes at a premium, though. You’ll pay $70 for 250GB, $120 for 500GB, or $200 for 1TB of capacity. There’s also a massive 2TB option for $300.
Alternatively, the WD Black SN850 is a hair behind the Samsung 980 Pro’s performance, but “by a rather slim margin,” for roughly the same price. “If you’re looking for the ultimate in single SSD PCIe4 storage performance, you won’t go wrong with either,” we said in our review. “Your choice.” It also earned our Editors’ Choice award.
The excellent Seagate FireCuda 530 is even faster than the Samsung 980 Pro if you’re looking for pure performance, but that extra speed comes at an even higher price—$150 for 500GB, $255 for 1TB, $490 for 2TB, or a heart-stopping $1,000 for 4TB. “[The Seagate FireCuda 530] not only bested the best of the rest in our real-world and synthetic benchmarks, it did so by a healthy margin in several tests,” we said in our review. “If you can afford it and you can find it, you won’t regret it.”
If you want an SSD with fast PCIe 4.0 speeds, but don’t want to spend up for Samsung or Seagate’s overkill-for-most-people performance, consider the XPG Gammix S50 Lite.
“The XPG Gammix S50 Lite is the first PCIe 4 SSD we’ve tested that doesn’t carry a hefty next-gen surcharge,” we said in our review. “In the real world, you’d be hard-pressed to tell the difference between a system running it, and one running the far more expensive Samsung 980 Pro. Very long transfers aside, it’s a very good deal.”
The Gammix S50 Lite costs $140 for 1TB or $260 for 2TB.
NVMe SSD setup: What you need to know
Be aware of what NVMe drives deliver before you buy in. Standard SATA SSDs already supercharge boot times and loading times for PCs, and for a whole lot cheaper. You’ll get the most use from NVMe drives, be it in a M.2 form factor like the Samsung 980 Pro or a PCIe drive, if you routinely transfer data, especially in large amounts. If you don’t do that, NVMe drives aren’t worth the price premium.
If you decide to buy an NVMe SSD, make sure your PC can handle it. This is a relatively new technology, so you’ll only be able to find M.2 connections motherboards from the past few years. Think AMD Ryzen and mainstream Intel chips from the Skylake era onward, for the most part. NVMe SSDs that were mounted on PCIe adapters were popular in the technology’s early years, before M.2 adoption spread, but they’re rarer now. Make sure you’re actually able to use an NVMe SSD before you buy one, and be aware that you’ll need 4 PCIe lanes available in order to use it to its full potential.
To get the most out of an NVMe drive, you want to run your operating system on it, so you must have a system that recognizes the drive and can boot from it. PCs purchased during the past year or two should have no problem booting from an NVMe drive, but support for that can be iffy in older motherboards. Do a Google search for your motherboard and see if it supports booting from NVMe. You may need to install a BIOS update for your board. If your hardware can’t boot from an NVMe SSD, your machine should still be able to use it as a secondary drive.
What to look for in an SSD
Capacity and price are important, of course, and a long warranty can alleviate fears of premature data death. Most SSD manufacturers offer a three-year warranty, and some nicer models are guaranteed for five years. But unlike the olden days of SSDs, modern drives won’t wear out with normal consumer usage, as Tech Report tested and proved years ago with a grueling endurance test.
The biggest thing to watch out for is the technology used to connect the SSD to your PC. We go into deeper details and buying advice in our guide on which SSD you should buy.
- SATA: This refers to both the connection type and the transfer protocol, which is used to connect most 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch hard drives and SSDs to your PC. SATA III speeds can hit roughly 600MBps, and most—but not all—modern drives max it out. (More on that in the next section.)
- PCI-E: This interface taps into four of your computer’s PCIe lanes to blow away SATA speeds, to the tune of nearly 4GBps over PCIe gen. 3. Those sort of face-melting speeds pair nicely with supercharged NVMe drives. Both the PCIe lanes in your motherboard and the M.2 slot in your motherboard can be wired to support the PCIe interface, and you can buy adapters that allow you to slot “gumstick” M.2 drives into a PCIe lane. PCIe 4.0 drives are significantly faster, but require an AMD Ryzen 3000-series CPU with an X570 or B550 motherboard.
- NVMe: Non-Volatile Memory Express technology takes advantage of PCIe’s bountiful bandwidth to create blisteringly fast SSDs that blow SATA-based drives out of the water. Check out PCWorld’s “Everything you need to know about NVMe” for a nitty-gritty deep-dive.
- M.2: This is where things get tricky. Many people assume M.2 drives all use NVMe technology and PCIe speeds, but that’s not true. M.2 is just a form factor. Sure, most M.2 SSDs use NVMe, but some still stick to SATA. Do your homework. Many modern Ultrabooks rely on M.2 for storage.
- U.2 and mSATA: You may also stumble across mSATA and U.2 SSDs, but both motherboard support and product availability are rare for those formats. Some older Ultrabooks included mSATA before M.2 became popular, and drives are still available if you need them.
Speed matters, of course, but as we said most modern SSDs saturate the SATA III interface. Not all of them, though.
SSDs vs. hard drives
Do you need an SSD? “Need” is a strong word, but we heartily recommend that everyone upgrade to an SSD. Solid-state drive speeds blow even the fastest mechanical hard drives out of the water. Simply swapping the hard drive in your old laptop or desktop out for an SSD can make it feel like a whole new system—and a blazing fast one at that. Buying an SSD is easily the best upgrade you can make for a computer.
SSDs cost more per gigabyte than mechanical hard drives, though, and thus aren’t often available in ultra-high capacities. If you want speed and storage space, you can buy an SSD with limited space and use it as your boot drive, then set up a traditional hard drive as secondary storage in your PC. Place your programs on your boot drive, stash your media and other files on the hard drive, and you’re ready to have your cake and eat it too.

Which SSDs are the Best for AMD Ryzen Processors?
There are a lot of factors to consider when purchasing an SSD. Disk type, size, read/write speeds, durability, and price are all important considerations. There is no one perfect SSD, but there are some that stand out in the crowd.
There are four main types of SSDs for desktop computers: SATA III, PCIe NVMe M.2 2280 models (including AHCI and NVMe), SATA Express models (including AHCI), and mSATA models (usually including AHCI). While SATA III is not while it is a slower SSD when compared to the other three types on this list, the Crucial MX500 offers up to 50% more storage than traditional hard disks and is much cheaper in comparison, making it a great option for entry-level users who need lots of space.
Solid State Drives and Their Benefits
Solid state drives are much more durable than the traditional hard drives, which means that they don’t need to be replaced as often. This leads to significant cost savings.
Traditional hard drives have spinning disks that get damaged over time and then need to be replaced. Solid state drives, on the other hand, have no moving parts which makes them more durable and faster than traditional hard drives.
Comparing Internal vs External Drives for your Amd Ryzen 5s Processor – Which is Better?
With a higher number of cores, the internal drives are known to perform better than their external counterparts.
Working with an internal drive has its benefits as well. It is quieter and cooler when compared to external ones. The design is also more aesthetic. If you want to improve performance, then go for an internal drive.
How to Keep Your Data Safe with a Solid-State Drive for your Amd Ryzen 5s Processor
The SSD-for-HDD swap is a cost-effective and time-saving way to keep your data safe.
The always-on nature of an SSD means that it’s always on and ready to go, which is perfect for power users who want to get work done as quickly as possible. It also means the drive won’t need to be spun up for use, so you can avoid additional wear and tear on the drive.
An SSD provides faster access times than an HDD, which means less wait time when you’re working with large files or applications. Plus, there are no moving parts in an SSD, so there’s less noise from a running drive.

Does Asus X505 Ryzen 5 have an M 2 SSD slot Does it support NVMe?
The Asus X505 Ryzen 5 is a 15.6-inch laptop that comes with an AMD Ryzen 5 CPU. It features an M 2 SSD slot and supports NVMe.
The Asus X505 Ryzen 5 also features the latest Intel UHD 620 Graphics on board that works well with applications like Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects and Avid Media Composer.

which is better an i5 8th gen with 512GB SSD or a Ryzen 5 quad core with 1TB HDD?
This question is to see which one of the two would be better for a PC build, the i5 8th gen or a Ryzen 5 quad core.
The Ryzen 5 quad core computer would require more space so it is recommended to go with an i5 8th gen. The i5 8th gen would be better because it has much higher performance while still using less power and thermal issues.
While the Ryzen 5 quad core computer would use less power, it has lower performance so it would not be the best option.
Is Ryzen 5 Good enough? for gaming
A lot of people are wondering if Ryzen 5 is enough for gaming. It’s hard to tell what Ryzen 5 can do because it has just been released and there are only a few reviews available at the time this article was written.
The answer to this question depends on what kind of games you play – any game or games with high-end graphics and gameplay requirements will need more power than Ryzen 5 can provide. However, if you like playing more casual games like Fortnite or PUBG
How do I use SSD as cache for AMD hard drive?
SSDs and hard drives are two different types of storage devices. If you’re using an SSD, then you don’t need to use it as a cache drive for your hard drive.
If you are using an older HDD, then you should consider making it into a cache drive for your SSD. You can do this by making the HDD slower and more power-efficient than the SSD, and setting up the system so that most of the time data on the HDD is in cold storage (not being accessed).
If this is done correctly, then your system should perform better due to quicker access to data from the HDD.
How much power does Ryzen 5 need?
According to the specifications, the Ryzen 5 needs a power supply input of at least 300W. The TDP on that same processor is 65W, so it’s not clear if a smaller power supply should be purchased or if it’s actually possible to power it with a smaller one.
The following are some of the things that you can do to reduce your power consumption in case you need to downsize your PSU:
-Reduce the brightness.
-Lowering CPU clock speed will help as well.
-Disable unnecessary peripherals such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi adapters and anything else that uses little energy when not in use.
Why SSD should not be full? reason
In the past, a user would buy an SSD for its fast and durable performance. However, nowadays SSDs are not as good as they used to be because they have reached their limit in terms of storage capacity.
SSDs are not a good option for storing lots of data or operating system files anymore, so when should you get an SSD?
When you need reliable storage that doesn’t have any moving parts. Data is used to generate the heat in an HDD which can lead to physical damage. Having no moving parts means it’s less likely for errors to occur and allow it to last longer than other options.
Can I use a Gen 4 M 2 SSD with a Ryzen 5 3600?
Generally speaking, the answer is yes. There are a few things to keep in mind though.
The main issue with using the Gen 4 M 2 SSDs is that they are not compatible with AMD’s Ryzen 5 3600 processors. This could mean that you won’t be able to use all of the features on your computer or that it may even crash your CPU because the SSD isn’t fast enough.
The second issue with these SSDs is that they have a capacity of 256GB which will fill up quickly if you regularly use applications like Photoshop and Premiere Pro.
I have a Ryzen 3600 16GB RAM and 512GB SSD for gaming Is this overkill?
A good gaming computer is a necessity for anyone who wants to play AAA games on the highest settings. However, there are people who do not need that much of a machine to play their favorite games. Many people believe that the more RAM and storage your computer has, the better it will perform. Is this true?
Overkill may be good for some people, but it is not true for all. There are people who don’t need that much to game and won’t get any better performance out of their gaming setup with a top-notch configuration like this one because they won’t know how to optimize their PC with services like NVIDIA Shadowplay or AMD Radeon Wattman. For these reasons, you should test your PC before jumping into buying an expensive peripheral like this one!

Is NEW Ryzen 5 3600XGood or bad?
With a price tag of around $200, the Ryzen 5 3600X is on the cheaper end of the spectrum and it will be able to provide enough performance for casual gaming as well as day-to-day tasks.
The Ryzen 5 3600X is not really worth buying at this point in time. A slight bump in performance from the 1800X can’t justify the cost increase. It’s too expensive and doesn’t offer anything new.
The Ryzen 5 3600X is definitely one of AMD’s best offerings for consumers who are interested in a more budget-friendly option than Intel’s Core i5 CPUs. It offers impressive gaming performance but it can also handle everyday tasks without any issues thanks to its four cores, eight threads, and 12MB of L3 cache.
